Macy's called, help us answer...
Imagine millions of viewers nationwide marveling at the grandeur of the Mighty Sound of the Southeast as it resonates through the bustling streets of New York. USC’s talented 375-member Carolina Band is thrilled to announce we have been invited to march in the esteemed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2024! But we need your help to make it from our home in Columbia to the Big Apple.
From the Palmetto State to the Empire State
As we journey across 700 miles, the band will entertain crowds, build bridges, and create a lifetime of memories. This isn't just an opportunity for us to showcase our skills, this will be an experience of a lifetime for the Marching Gamecocks! When you sponsor this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will help cover critical needs - from travel and accommodations to uniforms, meals, instruments, and more.
The Roar of the Southeast, On the Streets of the Northeast!
With you, we can meet our fundraising goal of $645,000 to be able to accept the invitation to perform on Thanksgiving Day in New York City. Support from Carolina Band fans like you are the only way we can say YES to Macy’s invitation and share this amazing experience with our students and the world.
